JR Calls Interview Attempt Sad, WWE Hall of Famer Releasing a Book, More

– Devin sent the following: WWE returns to the Foster Communications Coliseum in San Angelo, Texas on January 8th, 2012 at 3 PM.

– WWE Hall of Famer Hacksaw Jim Duggan will be releasing his autobiography through Triumph Books in April of 2012. The book is written by Duggan and Scott Williams with the working title of “Hacksaw: The Jim Duggan Story.”

– Jim Ross, who is celebrating his 18th anniversary with his wife today, is going to WWE headquarters next week to film new Legends Roundtable segments.

Ross wrote the following about the backstage footage on WWE’s website of an interviewer asking questions as he left the arena at Monday’s RAW, right after he was fired in the ring by John Laurinaitis:

“In case you haven’t seen it the, ambush interview w/ me after embarrassingly getting relieved of my post is a bad joke. Actually sad”

    I am sure somebody will bring him back. I am surprised he got fired already.

    They’re playing this up really well, the staged firing was a great way to generate heat for Laurinaitis. It’s funny that a man of J.R.’s age is really the one responsible for WWE getting a foothold in social media, and he probably does one of the best jobs of playing an angle out online.

    I do wonder if he’s coming back after Laurinaitis loses power, though, or if the plan is to have him continue to fill other roles.
